Boron Nutrition and Boron Application in Crops
Apical dominance is the suppression of lateral shoots by a robustly growing shoot apex. The mechanism for this apical dominance is generally accepted to be through the polar flow of auxins, most notably indoleacetic acid (IAA), synthesized in the shoot apex and young leaves (Li et al. 2001).
